What is the difference between the 5efe & 5efhe
just wondered what the difference between the 5efe and the 5efhe engine's are and wich is better to use for a turbo conversion.
Been covered loads do a search and find out why 5efhe is better.... homework.
actually there isnt alot covered.
Ive tried searching but there isnt much on the difference between the two.
The answer is simple really, both blocks the same. The FHE has stronger rods and has a slightly better head due to the cam but people ask stupid money for these.
I bought a 5efe engine for 50quid and all i wanted is the block.
Surly it dosent matter which one you buy if you going to forge all the internals??
Think theres a bit about it in this thread??
I think One has much thicker rods but dunno if that matters when forging?
ideally what you want for a 5e is the crank, block and the rods.
From my understanding there isnt really a need to have forged rods unless you intend on going past the stock rev limit. If not then the stock FHE ones will do fine.
